Route description[edit]

North Carolina Highway 770 begins at NC 704 near Sandy Ridge, North Carolina. The road begins to head to the east from the intersections along a two lane road. The road continues through a very rural area of Stokes County, passing by many farms. The road curves around the foothills of North Carolina until reaching US 220. As the road reaches Stoneville it crosses over the Mayo River and then continues into the town. The road has an interchange with US 220 before entering Downtown. NC 770 passes through Stoneville along Main Street. After leaving Stoneville the road continues through rural Stokes County before reaching the community of Providence. Shortly before the highway enters Eden it turns to the left along a bypass that bypasses the downtown area of Eden. NC 770 crosses over the Dan River before the bypass ends at NC 14. The route turns left along NC 14 and runs through the outskirts of Eden. NC 770 turns right at an interchange with NC 700/US 311. The road then follows US 311 to the Virginia state line.[1]

History[edit]

NC 770 began in 1930 between US 311 in Stoneville and NC 54 in Leaksville. In 1933 NC 770 was extended east to the Virginia State Line via. the town of Draper. In 1934 the road was extended again to the west running along US 311 for a couple of miles and then continuing to NC 704. In 1966 the road was straightened to run directly into Stoneville. In 2000 the road was routed along its current routing around Eden.
